    2. 1. Nf3 - A Variable Repertoire for White - Lubomir Ftacnik

      1. Nf3 - A Variable Repertoire for White - Lubomir Ftacnik

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95


      1.Nf3 - a variable Repertoire for White is the name for a comprehensive opening system strategy based on security and choice.

      The old maxim of perceiving 1.e4 openings as tactical and more dangerous as opposed to the more positional and peaceful 1.d4 openings no longer reflects the modern world of chess openings.

      This repertoire DVD is the fruit of a lifetime's experience, as the author Lubomir Ftacnik uses it actively in his practice.

      The system gives all White players the chance to fine-tune the level of exposure and risk Learn More

    3. A Black Defensive System with 1... d6

      A Black Defensive System with 1... d6

      Our Price: $9.95
      Grandmaster Soltis blends this defensive 1..d6 move into a coherent defensive system answering whatever white throws at black. This move frequently transposes into the sharp, attacking, ultra-dynamic King's Indian Defense when played against 1.d4. Against 1.e4, the Pirc(or sometimes also the Modern Defense) arises, bringing a very flexible setup which can vary wild, attacking chess to solid, positional maneuvering. 1..d6 is a flexible way to combat any white first move. Learn More
    4. A Strategic Opening Repertoire

      A Strategic Opening Repertoire

      Our Price: $29.95

      In 1998 a slim volume by IM John Donaldson explored the crafting of a sophisticated but easily assimilated group of interrelated opening strategies intending to establish small but lasting advantages. The result, A Strategic Opening Repertoire was an instant success. Now this second edition, revised by Danish FM Carsten Hansen with the assistance of John Donaldson, is greatly expanded - twice the size, with many more games and detailed explanations.

    6. Albin's Countergambit for Experts - Rustam Kasimdzhanov

      Albin's Countergambit for Experts - Rustam Kasimdzhanov

      Regular Price: $39.95

      Our Price: $36.95

      Many chessplayers consider Albin’s Countergambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5) nothing more than a relict of romantic chess, connecting with it – at most – the names of the old masters like Lasker, Aljechin, Janowski, Marshall and Keres.

    7. Attack with Black

      Attack with Black

      Our Price: $22.95

      Attacking with the Benko Gambit - Alejandro Ramirez

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95

      Throughout the years, it has become difficult for Black to find active and promising prospects against 1.d4. White players are usually looking for a stable, solid and permanent advantage to torture their opponents with. This DVD covers all the potential variations that arise after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5. You will gain not only grandmaster knowledge of the specific lines and variations with the latest games from top GMs – you will also gain the essential strategical and tactical ideas that dominate the Benkö Gambit structures and setups, enabling you to outplay your opponent once the opening phase is finished Learn More

    10. Beating the Pirc/Modern with the Fianchetto Variation

      Beating the Pirc/Modern with the Fianchetto Variation

      Our Price: $4.95
      One of the most solid and consistently successful systems available against 1..d6 and 1..g6 is the subtle Fianchetto. If you play 1.e4, you will want to know how to beat the Pirc/Modern. If you play either of these 2 defenses, you will want to know what will be played against you. The White setup is pawns at e4, d4, and g3, White Knights at c3 and e2, and Bishops at g2 and usually e3 - then attack, attack! Learn More
    11. Beating Unusual Chess Openings

      Beating Unusual Chess Openings

      Our Price: $24.95

      Out of stock

      Beating Unusual Chess Openings is a godsend to those chess players fed up with struggling against all opening moves other than White's main two: 1 e4 and 1 d4. From the respectable (English Opening, Reti and King's Indian Attack) through to the off-beat (Nimzo-Larsen Attack, Bird's Opening) and the totally bizarre (Orangutan, Grob); everything Black needs to know about facing unusual openings is covered within these pages.

    12. Bird's Opening

      Bird's Opening

      Regular Price: $33.95

      Our Price: $30.95

      It is no pleasure to play with Black against the Bird-Opening (1.f4) – one is vaguely familiar with some bad disasters, but less familiar with ways to avoid them.

    14. Blackburne-Hartlaub Gambit

      Blackburne-Hartlaub Gambit

      Our Price: $4.95
      In this Chess Openings for Hustlers Volume II the author looks at both the Accepted 3.exd6 and the Declined 3.Nf3 and 3.Bf4. The idea of this gambit is well worth the effort of the player who wants to learn an aggressive Black defense against 1.d4 where white doesn't control the flow of the game. The book contains 155 games divided into variations with light analysis played by a variety of players ranging from Master to class C. A player index has been provided which lists players grouped by "Class" to help the reader evaluate the games. Learn More

      Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Bogoljubow Variation

      Our Price: $12.95

      The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit is rarely seen at the chess master level but is popular and successful among amateur players. It was played by Grandmaster Efim Bogoljubow who played two matches for the World Chess Championship and who said "When I am white I win because I am white. When I am black I win because I am Bogoljubov.

      In the fifth volume of our openings tutorials we will be dealing with the Flank Openings. We make a start with the English Opening 1.c4.

      Chigorin Defense

      Regular Price: $33.95

      Our Price: $30.95

      On master level, the Chigorin Defence has been played relatively seldom, and probably that's one of the reasons why it has been analysed less intensively than other openings.

      Decimate Black with the Evans Gambit - EMPIRE CHESS

      Our Price: $34.95
      The Evans Gambit is one of the most dangerous chess openings ever invented as white recklessly sacrifices a pawn on move 4 to obtain a lasting initiative with an enduring lead in development. The Evans Gambit arises via the move order 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4!? – as white sacrifices this pawn to distract black’s minor pieces and open lines for instant attacking prospects as black’s king will have a difficult time getting out of the center.
